Supporting every learner across the IB continuum

Pearson Baccalaureate Essentials is the first IB series written specifically for EAL students. Designed to supplement standard textbooks, each book acts as a condensed guide to Diploma subjects, with targeted language to embed key concepts without the obstacle of translation. The books are written in a clear academic style, using efficient and succinct sentences which are accessible for students whose first language is not English.

The series contains:

  • focused content structured around the learning objectives of each subject guide
  • model sentences to guide responses, answer-openers and exam advice
  • synonym, glossary and subject vocabulary boxes
  • extended essay and internal assessment proposals and support
  • highlighted key words and phrases, placed within the context of the course.
  • accompanying eText with audio files of glossaries, model sentences and hints for success, plus PDFs of complete vocabulary lists.

Pearson Baccalaureate Essentials can also be used by non-EAL students as clear and targeted revision guides.
